The Management Pack for vRealize Hyperic uses the vRealize Hyperic REST API to register for metric notification with the vRealize Hyperic server. When autodiscovery is enabled, the management pack registers all vRealize Hyperic resources. When autodiscovery is disabled, the management pack registers only specific vRealize Hyperic resources.

After the Management Pack for vRealize Hyperic registers a resource with the vRealize Hyperic server, the server posts metric data for that resource to the vRealize Operations Manager adapter. The vRealize Operations Manager adapter forwards the metric data to the Management Pack for vRealize Hyperic.
